about

The fifth book in the Guides for the Prairie Gardener series is all about getting good soil-from chemical composition to compost, fertilizer to fungi, and much more.

Soil is a whole world under our feet, full of fun words you may have heard but never quite understood, like hard-pan, humus, loam, and tilth. In this fifth book in the Guides for the Prairie Gardener series, master gardeners Janet and Sheryl provide the basics of soil science so that you can apply it to your gardening endeavours.

They answer your questions on things like

  • How do I test the chemical composition of my garden soil?
  • What''s the difference between organic, inorganic, and natural fertilizers?
  • What do those numbers on packages of fertilizer mean?
  • How and when should I amend my garden''s soil?
  • Hot compost? Cold compost? Worm compost?
  • Egg shells, coffee grounds, banana peels-yes or no?
  • What exactly do mycorrhizal fungi do?

In this handy Q-and-A guide, focused specifically on the prairie region, you''ll learn what particles are dominant in your soil, how to make successful compost, the value of mulch, tips on no-till practices and cover crops, and solutions to problems such as compaction, heavy clay, salinity, and soil-borne diseases. With Janet and Sheryl''s insight you''ll soon be well on your way to healthy, happy soil.
